His frustration turns into tortured insanity and murder. This short, intense film is a little masterpiece. Highly recommended. Playwright Georg Büchner had passed on before his work could be published in any complete way.
As a result, his finished pages have been reassembled multiple times by a number of artists and writers. I guess it is a well-known phenomenon to know that certain scenes are unnecessary and others can be moved around, yet still be Woyzeck.
This ability to become new with every iteration has caused the work to become one of the most performed German plays ever and, as it is here from Werner Herzog, an often confusing yet captivating piece of art.
Josef Bierbichler is the guiltiest here as the Drum Major our titular Franz Woyzeck's love Marie has an affair with, but both Wolfgang Reichmann and Willy Semmelrogge as the Captain and Doctor respectively don't fall too far behind him.
The acting works for certain scenes, adding a sense of artifice like an interesting monologue by a drunk outside a bar, waxing poetic about how humanity is evil.
There truly is a sense of the beyond as though we are watching an alternate universe with every aspect familiar yet slightly off-kilter. This effect is amplified by the camera-work, allowing for some excruciatingly long scenes depicting the breakdown of the human soul.
Even from the opening credits, watching Kinski's Woyzeck do push-ups while constantly being kicked for way too long, we experience some fantastic acting as a result.
No scene is more memorable than the murder of Marie, shot in slomotion while an orchestral piece plays, drowning out all sound.
You can get lost in Kinski's eyes as he goes from love to anger to malice to regret. The tears welling up as we just stare at him in close-up without a cut.
It's just a powerhouse-acting clinic. Perhaps I should delve into the story a bit. Remember, though, this description comes from both the film and reading an online synopsis of the play because Herzog doesn't feel the need for exposition.
Woyzeck has fathered a child with his mistress Marie, a fact that the entire town knows. Woyzeck is beaten physically and emotionally until he can take no more.
Breaking from reality, he starts to hear and see things; anger boils inside him, unable to stay there as the voices beg him to let it out. He is no longer a man of free will; everything he does is either an order, a remark made to plant the seed, or his insanity speaking out to him.
There are many existential aspects throughout with outside forces assailing him without an ability to stop them. He becomes the circus trick so blatantly metaphoric to a dressed-up monkey and mathematical genius horse in a scene that contains the most glaringly strange cut of Marie basically leaving her child and Woyzeck to sit all giggly with the Drum Major two rows back.
Used and abused by society, Woyzeck is a stand-in for what stronger people have been doing to the weak for centuries. Made into a parlor trick, an entertainment for those who wield control over him, this man is at the mercy of no longer differentiating between right and wrong.
It is an interesting thing done by Herzog in that he doesn't show us the man before the insanity. Rather, we are introduced to Woyzeck at the cusp of his tipping point, almost saying that we are all there, just waiting to be pushed over.
To be human, therefore, is to be fragile enough to allow yourself to be manipulated from emotion, to be led astray. In the end though, this is Herzog's vision of the story: a man lost and left alone by society rather than embraced and brought inside it.
Someone so troubled that he would kill the one thing he loved above all else, whose insanity leaves him unsure of how to even dispose of the murder weapon.
After throwing the knife into the river, he follows it deeper and deeper, telling himself they might find it.
I originally thought this was him going to his death by drowning, verified when reading a play synopsis , however, when the police are shown at the end, I thought the man at the left was Woyzeck there to identify the body.
And the river wasn't very wide, so he'd have gotten to the other side. Either way, it concludes with written text superimposed over the image speaking of how it had been so long since they've had a murder quite like this.
Even here, Woyzeck is proved to be the catalyst for a demented storybook ending, the cause of a new spectacle for the people to see.
Society has become so lost that rather than see the human tragedy of a dead woman, they just see the excitement of a murder and all that goes along with it.
Humanity has decided to sever ties with itself, death just another stage of life to be gawked at by outsiders, the value of the soul all but gone.
The Left Elbow Index considers seven specific elements of a film on a scale of 10 to 1, with 10 being highest, to help in deciding if a film is worth watching: acting, sets, dialogue, plot, character, continuity, and artistry.
The acting in this film is superb and thereby rates a Klaus Kinski is exceptional, so much so that it unlikely anyone else could do nearly as well in this role.
He is simply stunning. In this regard, it is beyond Shakespearian. Werner Herzog, in his well publicized love-hate relation with Kinski, claims people like Brando are just kintergarten compared to Kinski--no faint praise, indeed.
The sets is this film seem carefully planned and constructed. They are appropriate and uncontrived, whether indoors or out, therefore a 9.
Dialogue rates a 10 in that it is at times appropriately ironic, profound, or normal. It all cases one listens to every word. The film is replete with dozens of unforgettable lines, like: "Death should be cheap but it should not be free" by the pawnbroker selling the knife and "When she got to the moon she found it was made of rotted wood" by Marie.
The Index believes that the plot is an 8, mostly because there seems to be some misleading action. Perhaps this is related to Woyzeck's mental state.
It seems unlikely that a sane person could follow his trail. Character development rates a 10, whether related to major or to minor characters.
Continuity an 8 results in a consistent view of the action. For example, the role of the military, morality for the poor, the idea that the poor will work in heaven, and other ideas never escape the intellectual frame of the film.
Consistent costuming lends to this. Herzog's background in history and the humanities certainly provides an easy 10 rating for artistry.
Herzog says he made the film in just eighteen days, and edited the cuts in just four days. He claims that is how it should be, that it was perfect.
Perfect, of course, is an imperfect word. I'm not certain I would claim this film is perfect: however, it is exceptional enough for me to put it on my "see often" list.
The Index gives it a 9. I strongly recommend this film. I didn't know that Woyzeck is based on a play, written by Georg Büchner "has become one of the most performed and influential play in the German theatre repertory", we can read this in its Wikipedia page , however one can see that easily.
This is a strange film; this film has a very strange character. This is a marvelous performance, I don't dare to write that it is the absolute best performance of Kinski but you will be amazed for sure.
In this case the film is about him, he has to be the "attraction", the one who will make you feel and he success.
And he changes a lot during the film, is a unique character study that shows a man who was there to live as an inferior. He was a soldier who was seeing as anything but not as a person.
At one point everything collapses inside his mind. There are few characters; we see the captain Wolfgang Reichmann and the doctor Willy Semmelrogge.
Both are similar characters, both will "help" for that collapse. Is clear that both are ignorant about the consequences of their acts, mostly the doctor who simply played with health of Woyzeck who does take the money to his family, Marie Eva Mattes and his son.
Marie felt something for the drum major Josef Bierbichler , she was doing something that will take Woyzeck with the drum major who carries him without a single problem.
I write that Woyzeck changes and Kinski is amazing, we see Woyzeck as the "inferior" always thinking in something else, always nervous.
Look how he moves and look at his eyes in the sequence when he talks for the last time with Andres. The act of Woyzeck is represented in the most memorable sequence of the film.
It is an impressive sequence, since the music to the expressions of Kinski to the meaning itself.
The madness was there always and it delivers a final detail with a desperate Woyzeck inside the pond of a quite town , the paranoia was one of the expected things.
The beautiful photography is just another beautiful thing of this film. I just realize about the fact that it is an awarded film in Cannes.
Eva Mattes won as best supporting actress. She is terrific, for me the best of her scenes is that when she looks herself in the mirror.
She even tells a story that could be the story of her son. Anyway, this one is a very strange film. I loved it and from what I have seen is not one of the most accessible films of Werner Herzog however I recommend Woyzeck to any film lover out there.
This movie is far from perfect, but there are a few scenes here and there that are absolutly hair-raising : Kinski in a state of total exaustion at the begining, the scene in the woods when he starts to hear voices and the unbeleivable murder scene consisting of two shots disguised as one that last about 5 minutes in slow motion it has to be seens to be beleived.
The use of music is fantastic, the photography impecable. Herzog does as usual and captures another world while Kinski is plainly living in it.
There are a few off scenes and some of the dialogue gets a bit obvious in it's openly nialistic cliches, but most of the movie holds up.
One of those movies that you simply have to see at least once. I am a fan of Herzog so I'll cut to the chase There is a scene in the film where a cat is thrown out of a second story window right into the arms of Kinski after he catches the cat I believe he becomes hypnotized.
Kinski starts to shake and convulse granted he is an excellent actor but the fact that Herzog is always dealing with hypnotizing people and chickens Heart of Glass, Even Dwarfs Started Small i believe that he knew something about Kinski and his love for animals or maybe his hate for animals in any case he has strong feelings attached to these innocent creatures and I believe that Herzog exploits this to hypnotize Kinski.
When I watched it again I did so without the subtitles, I wanted to concentrate on the imagery and the shots. I came to realize how much Herzog's movies are like theater.
The sets are made and there is usually just one shot in a scene and from a direction that makes me feel like part of a theater audience granted some of these sets are on a location where there is little that needs to be done to get the imagery across.
It also contains one of the best death scenes in film history. I will not be doing so, but neither subtitles nor a literal understanding of the German language is necessary to appreciate this great "little" movie.
As in his documentaries, Herzog displays an uncanny ability to transport the viewer into a setting in a way that conveys the often surreal experience one finds in real life itself without any artifice of production or staging.
The use of music in a conspicuously sparing yet powerful and constructive way as a tool to drive both plot and emotion is a classic hallmark of Herzog's work that other directors would do well to employ instead of the modern tendency to add a complete musical background or pop music product placement throughout a film.
Klaus Kinski's performance is nothing short of brilliant. Every other character could have been substituted with stand-up cardboard cut-outs and their dialogue read by a narrator and Kinski would have made the film just as compelling.
This is not a criticism in any way of the other acting performances in this film. It is simply a way of stating that Kinski's performance could have carried this as a one man show.
I have read all of the other reviews and choose not to delve into plot or theme analysis other than to say that the film poses many of the basic existential questions regarding humanity.
It is a film worth watching more than once, and is not one to be figured out or explained so much as to be used as a launching point for a discussion on the human condition as a whole.
An absolute must watch for a serious film lover. All teenage and secondary school thespians should view this work. Cosmoeticadotcom 24 September One of the signs of a great artist is that even when not at the top of his game he is still capable of flashes of utter brilliance.
It is not a great film, but is a film with moments of greatness in its eighty minute length, and was the third of five films made by the director-actor team.
Part of the reason the film, as a whole, does not reach greatness is because it wears its stage roots too strongly, especially in its overtly philosophic monologues.
Not surprisingly, for a stagey film, the tale is claustrophobic, and was shot in just eighteen days, in , in Czechoslovakia, less than a week after Herzog wrapped on his film Nosferatu, Phantom Of The Night, the remake of the F.
Murnau silent film horror classic. The tale is a simple one, about a German soldier, Friedrich Johann Franz Woyzeck Kinski , in the early 19th Century, who slowly goes mad and kills his faithless lover Marie Eva Mattes , possibly an ex-prostitute, who is having sex with another military man.
Many critics claim that the woman is Woyzeck's wife, but, as they live apart and she does not bear his name, there is no evidence within the film for this assertion- which is often the case in film criticism, that false information is repeated ad infinitum.
But, as simple a tale as the film tells, it is the how of this film that lifts it from possible banality to near greatness.
Kinski's performance, as usual, is riveting, and even though nowhere near as mesmerizing as his titanic performance in Aguirre: The Wrath Of God, it is nonetheless brilliant.
The most commented upon scene is the one where Woyzeck murders his lover near a pond. It is done in slow motion and to music, and has a certain brilliance to it- especially as Kinski's character briefly realizes he has gone over the edge, but this sort of violence has been done before on screen, if not as well.
A better scene comes when Woyzeck's doctor tosses a cat out of a second story window, and Woyzeck catches it, then quivers as the cat shits on him.
It's the kind of odd thing that happens in reality that rarely occurs in film, and Kinski's portrayal of his reaction to it is every bit as wonderful as the murder scene.
Yes, there are costumes, but the reality shown in this film is not of soaring landscapes and marvelous old buildings, but of grimy streets, hand-held camera shots of dark, dingy little apartments, not of clean, gilt mansions.
This is an intimate period piece, not a costume drama, and its people are life sized quivering little people, not semi-mythic towering heroic creatures.
Herzog, as he did in Aguirre and in The Enigma Of Kaspar Hauser, shows the viewer the world as it was, not as how it should have been.
Woyzeck is usually dismissed in the Herzog canon by critics for its visuals- the darkness and static camera shots, for they claim that is part of its staginess.
They're wrong. Not in that such shots are not 'stagey,' but in that that's a bad thing in the film.
The visuals all work splendidly in evoking mood. The stagey aspect of the film that denies it greatness is the often too deeply philosophical monologues from such dimwitted characters.
This kills some of the realism that film does better than stage productions. Yet, that's not a major quibble for this excellent little film, with the 'little' being used in all its best connotations.
Whether Woyzeck is seen as a dark comedy or sinister drama depends upon the viewer's mood, to a great extent.Anmelden via Here. Die Besten Coming article source Age-Filme. Farb-Format Farbe.
